Our name refers to the image of Icarus, whose statue embellishes our entrance. Icarus, a hero from the Greek mythology, is locked up in a labyrinth with his father. With the help of feathers and wax, he creates wings to escape from the labyrinth over the sea. But he must be careful: if he flies too low, his wings will get wet, but if he flies too high, his wings will melt in the sun. We are ambitious and forward-looking but stand with both feet on the ground. A happy medium! The practice was founded by Dr. L.C. Peeters, Maxillofacial Surgeon, and was taken over by dentist Paule Peeters in 2007, who has developed the practice into the group Icarus.
